Helena, Montana
Barbara Burton, Executive Director

Florence Crittenton specializes in therapeutic residential services for pregnant and parenting young women ages 12 to 21 who may have struggles with substance abuse, depression, truancy, runaway tendencies, ADD /ADHD or who are having trouble in school. Barbara Burton, Executive Director, Cathryn English-Straub, Clinical Consultant and Maria Nyberg, MSW, Bonding and Attachment Specialist head up the treatment team.

Young women in the residential program receive 24-hour supervision with individualized attention and treatment focus for them and their babies. Mental Health Therapists, Bonding and Attachment Specialists, Parenting and Independent Living Skills Specialists, a Lactation Specialist and a Chemical Dependency Counselor work on site to provide individual, and group therapy. Treatment courses include smoking cessation, job skills training, childbirth education, nutritional education, independent living skills and pre- and postnatal care.

An individual treatment plan is created to meet the goals for each woman, written upon arrival by the treatment team. This plan incorporates treatment, educational and life goals and goals for the future of her child.

An onsite Child Development Center operates as an independent entity which enables the girls to continue their education or seek employment and to learn to negotiate the procedures of a normal daycare in readiness for when they leave the program.
